TRADE STANDS AND ADVERTISING
Trade stands have become a valuable part of the Ceramics Festival. They offer visitors the unique opportunity to purchase materials and equipment directly from suppliers and they in turn get to display/ demonstrate new products and services. We also welcome trade stands from ceramic institutions such as galleries and courses teaching ceramics and 3-D design. We aim to provide a variety of trade stands for the visitors experience to include: ceramic supplies and materials, services and information; ceramic publications and books, and much more! The festival attracts over 1000 visitors every year. Please watch the film below to see the layout of the trade stand area.

It includes the full programme of events plus listings for all trade stands in attendance as well as profiles of the guest demonstrators and lectures. It is often kept as a souvenir of the festival when visitors return home. After each Festival it is uploaded to the Festival Website where it is archived for anyone to download as a PDF to read at their leisure.
